Easter Monday

A day off work as Spring Break comes to a close, but not a day off of my doctoral program. I am still hammering away at the two comprehensive exams that are due by April 24.  I've been slowly grinding out those two, 15-page papers...even blew them off for the four days I was in Palm Springs. And, I managed to pick up a head cold just before Easter Sunday. Good times. 

Back at the writing today. But, I did take a lunch break and repotted the (Tradescantia fluminensis) Nanouk that I picked up at Trader Joes's a few weeks ago. It needed a bigger pot, one that is not a bunny. And, I decided to break off the Snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata) sprout from its mother and plant it on its own. Not only did it provide a nice break from writing scholarly papers, it serves as a reminder to nourish and recenter on occasion. 

note to self: only 29 more days of school until summer

Really into plants lately. I have always been interested in plants, honestly. However, this past year has given me time to focus on the plants I have in the house. I searched for a Norfolk Island Pine for months, but finally found one (in the black container below). 

My grandmother had one that was over five feel tall. Hoping mine will reach that height some day, like the fiddle leaf fig. 

And, I have been growing some more succulents from cuttings. Love these little jade plants. Plants really do make things brighter around the house. A little positivity is a good thing.
